1 Once again to meet the day,
Time has brought us on our way;
Once again to God we bring

Once again, once again,
Once again we meet to pray.

2 Round us always as we move,
Folded be Thy tender love;

Lead us back, O Lord, we pray. [Refrain]

3 In our joy and in our care,
Thou art with us everywhere;
Under Thy all-seeing eye
We must live, and we must die. [Refrain]
